When we moved in, there were 5 rooms in our house that had popcorn ceilings… the Dining Room, Living Room, 2 Bedrooms and the Study.
I took the popcorn down in the Dining Room in September. If you need a refresher on that fun experience, click HERE.
This weekend, we tackled the ceiling in the Guest Room. Um… yeah. If you recall, the Guest Bedroom was NOT on the list of current projects that I shared with you a couple of weeks ago (click HERE):
- Master Bathroom
I’m so excited to be included in this challenge! Each blog is choosing a color and has to implement that color through fabric, décor and paint. So, I had already chosen my color for the Master Bath and the Mudroom, so I decided to put a small time out on the bathroom and tackle the Guest Bedroom.
I’m not very good at tackling a room and leaving things undone. if there’s something that needs to be fixed, I can’t just decorate around it, like the popcorn.
So down it came. Here’s how it looked before:
and now… after 2 hours of popcorn removal, 1 hour of puttying and 2 hours of sanding…
Further proof that things get worse before they get better. I hate that. Here’s what all of that dust did to the ground:
Ugh. Double Ugh.As a side challenge, I’m trying to do this room’s update for under $150, including paint. I have all the furniture I need and I’m using a duvet cover that I’ve had since my first apartment out of college. I still love it and the colors… so that $150 has to pay for curtains, paint and décor.
The Color My World Challenge starts next Tuesday, April 1st. I’ll be sharing my Inspiration for the Guest Room!
